Abstract
In ZigBee networks, a tree topology is often used to construct a wireless sensor network for data delivery applications. However, the distributed address assignment mechanism provided in the ZigBee specification make inefficient use of the address space, which may cause the orphan problem. In this paper we addressed this problem and proposed a flexible address assignment scheme based on prefix codes, which can be easily applied to construct a tree topology ZigBee network with more efficient use of the address space. Moreover, it can also achieve a low overhead when an addition or subtraction of devices occurs in the network.
